The Homeward Bound group exhibition at Los Angeles’ Nicodim Gallery opened October 21 and is running to December 9.
The show includes work by over 25 artists including Monica Majoli, Kris Lemsalu, Simphiwe Ndzube, Ciprian Muresan, Namio Harukawa and Polly Borland among others. The press release and curatorial premise frames the concept of home “at its sweetest, most sinister, most honest. It’s where the heart is. And the liver. And the genitals.”
Playing with the format of a domestic setting, the installation fills the space and works play off and on each other, bleeding or stomping into the next where “all the skeletons are let out of the closet.” Designed by Oliver M. Furth, the gallery space becomes a home with each room exploring fenshui and friction. Moments of waiting for a lover to return, lounging with bondage and jello moulds that transform in orifices, contribute to the act of interior decorating.**
